Here is some team injury news:

UPDATE (17/10/13):

The Montreal Canadiens will be without forward Max Pacioretty for three weeks. Coach Michel Therrien announced Thursday that Pacioretty has a strained left hamstring.

UPDATE (16/10/13):

In other injury news, forward Max Pacioretty went for medical tests on Wednesday after suffering a lower-body injury during the Canadiens’ 3-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday. The team said it hopes to have more details and provide an update on Thursday.

Forward Max Pacioretty is out with what the Canadiens are calling a lower-body injury and is supposed to be evaluated sometime today on the severity of the injury. Pacioretty had just completed his fifth game of the year after missing most of the season opener against the Leafs and their second contest against the Philadelphia Flyers. Pacioretty has no real major history of a knee/leg injury so it’s safe to say he didn’t re-aggravate anything from before. We can speculate that he has suffered some sort of groin or hamstring injury by the way he was limping off and the area in which he was expressing pain in. The groin type injuries can vary from a day-to-day, week-to-week or even month-to-month.

 

UPDATE (16/10/13): Davis Drewiske will be out 5-6 months after having successful shoulder surgery earlier today. Drewiske sustained a shoulder injury during the teams training camp and was expexcted to be out for at least 4-6 weeks. Now with the shoulder surgery complete and successful we can expect Drewiske to be back around March/April.

Canadiens’ defenceman Davis Drewiske is expected to be out five to six months after undergoing shoulder surgery, the team announced Wednesday.

Dr. Paul Martineau, the Canadiens’ head orthopedic surgeon, performed the surgery Wednesday morning at a Montreal hospital.
